“Worst museum ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Don't come here, it's probably the worst museum ever. Can't think of any place worse in the world I have been to. It's ugly, horrbile collection and the staff couldn't care any less about almost everything. This museum should be closed. What a waste of money.

“Lots of interesting equipment outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Only visited the outside area which has lots of examples of boats, cranes, dock equipment, etc. No explanations provided so you do need to have some idea what you are looking at.

“Made for Maritime enthusiasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

It offers you a lot of information about maritime industry back from VOC's time up until now. If your country have a "special" relationship with the Netherlands like Indonesia, you would probably find your country maritime history too. I saw a nice photo of dock yard in Tanjung Priok which probably I could never find in Indonesia.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

It was nice to see all the models of ships and some of the paints but, like it was already refered here, not very friendly to foreigners that don't speak Dutch.
It has some, apparently cool, paygrounds for the kids so.... if you speak Dutch and have kids, I' surely recommend.
